Hockey Helps the Homeless Waterloo Region

Craig Herner, president of Ultimate Vision Web & IT Solutions, has been a volunteer for Hockey Helps the Homeless Waterloo Region for nine years (2014-2022). In the first eight years we have been able to raise over $1,600,000 for five local homelessness support agencies who comprise the emergency shelter bed network in Waterloo Region.


At Hockey Helps the Homeless, we leverage Canada’s affinity for hockey to support the over 250,000 men, women and children who will experience homelessness in Canada this year. We maximize our local impact by partnering with organizations that contribute to the ultimate goal of ending homelessness in communities across Canada.

Net proceeds raised through the Waterloo Region Tournament will go directly to five homelessness support agencies in Waterloo Region: Cambridge Shelter Corporation, Lutherwood’s Safe Haven Shelter, House of Friendship, YW Kitchener-Waterloo, and oneROOF Youth Services.

These five organizations provide individuals and families with accommodations and the wholistic support they need to thrive, but we cannot do it alone.

We need you. Together, we will end homelessness in Waterloo Region and beyond.

These five local homeless support agencies provide emergency shelter and aim to create long term solutions to end homelessness.
